Rousey, Flair, Belair, and Baszler were the final four. Flair took out Belair and Baszler to set up the final showdown, which didn’t last very long at all. Shortly after, Rousey tossed her and couldn’t help but smile as she walked out at the warm welcome her victory received.

Babyface Rousey? She was wearing all black, but... she was awfully happy.
